December 11, 2021 – Vancouver, British Columbia – Blender Bites Ltd. (the “Company”, “Blender Bites” or “Blender”), (CSE: BITE, FWB: JL4, WKN: A3C3Y2), a Canadian company involved in the development and marketing of a line of premium, organic and plant-based pre-portioned frozen functional foods, announces a record increase in revenue over the previous three months.
Blender Bites was the first company to produce a pre-portioned smoothie puck in the Canadian market and its certified organic, non-GMO, plant-based convenient smoothie pucks are currently available in over 800 retail stores across Canada. Over the previous 3 months, the Company saw a historic revenue increase which can be attributed to significantly expanding its distribution channels to a number of Canadian Club stores, as well as Loblaw’s, Canada’s largest grocery store chain.
The Company is pleased to announce that over the last three months, September to November 2021, combined revenue was $743,000 with related expenses for the same period of $586,000. This is a significant 2,266% increase in revenue over the same September to November period in 2020, which generated $32,800 in revenue with related expenses for the same period of $20,020.
The September to November 2021 revenue also represents a 404% increase over the previous 3 months, June to August 2021. This increase in revenue illustrates that the Company is witnessing the rapid growth cycle the Company is on.
These historic revenue numbers are a direct result of the Company’s ability to capitalize on consumer trends, and capture market share in the functional beverage market. As more consumers choose healthy alternatives, instead of juice or other sugary products, Blender Bites is focused on expanding its brand awareness and marketing efforts to target these consumers. The introduction of additional distribution locations through the launch at Club Stores as well as nationwide at Canada’s largest grocery chain, Loblaws, have improved the Company’s reach to consumers, fueling growth.
“Blender Bites has shown exponential growth with its record revenue for September, October and November of 2021. We have started to implement our Canadian expansion plans and are seeing the early stage results of our hard work. We believe that Blender Bites will continue to see further rapid growth in Canada as our strategy rolls out to the market. We have also just launched our US expansion, representing our largest potential for growth, as it targets an audience ten times the size of the Canadian one.” stated Chelsie Hodge, the Company’s CEO.
The Company cautions that the above figures for revenue have not been audited and are based upon calculations prepared by management. Actual results may differ from those reported in this release once these figures have been audited.
